- [Instructor] What do we want to do next?…I know what I want to do next.…I want to add some text.…So we're going to go over back to the left side here,…use the text tool.…I'm just going to click on Add Text…and just bring it down here, like this.…And let's just give it a name.…We'll call it...…Nothing too fancy there.…Now I don't like this font at all so that's okay.…
We have different fonts to choose from.…That'll work out nicely, right there.…So then I go ahead and go back…and I want to change the angle a bit.…I thought that angle came in a little crooked by default.…There, something like that, okay.…And the size.…Let's just take it down a bit.…There we go and we'll make it left flush.…We can bring this over like this.…
All right, now we can just click and drag it…wherever we want.…We can just put it right there.…And I still don't quite like that angle there.…Zero is not zero.…There we go and we have other things we could play with.…We could play with the opacity,…could play with a blend.…Angle we've already done.…
